2018 Georgia State Election Results

Election 2018

2018 Georgia Election Results

Blue Ridge, Ga. – A closely watched gubernatorial race has come to a close, at least for now. With 100 percent of the precincts being accounted for and absentee ballots having been counted, Kemp has declared victory.

Cody Hall, Press Secretary with Kemp’s campaign said in a statement of this victory, “Brian Kemp earned nearly two million votes on Tuesday – by far the most of any gubernatorial candidate in our state’s history. Absentee ballots are counted and Kemp leads his opponent by 64,000 votes. Based on counts released by the Secretary of State’s office, Brian Kemp’s margin is so large that the number of provisional ballots and overseas ballots will not change his Election Day victory. Simply put, it is mathematically impossible for Stacey Abrams to win or force a run-off election.”

Stacey Abrams has yet to concede the election stating that she “will not give up until every vote is counted and every voice has been heard.”

“Peach State voters made a clear decision at the ballot box,” Hall spoke of Kemp’s declared victory, “Brian Kemp will now begin his transition as governor-elect of Georgia. He will work every day to keep our state moving in the right direction.”

Results from this race will not be official until all counties have certified. This certification is expected to be completed by Friday Nov. 9, but could run until Tuesday Nov. 13 due to the Federal Veteran’s Day holiday.

ECHOES OF THE PAST

Opinion

The United States has only seen the face of war one time. That time was during the Civil
War and was mostly in the Southern states from 1861 to 1865. It was an ugly time of brother
against brother and the first time total war was practiced on the civilian population by General
William T. Sherman.

In this the US has been blessed, but Europe, of course cannot say the same.

I watched the movie The Monument Men at last. I had resisted watching it in the past as I abhor
George Clooney and Matt Damon for their high handed, self righteous politics. However, since it
was in the $3.74 bin at the local big box store, I relented.

I came away with two points of concern.

Number one was how the face of war came very close to destroying all that was beautiful in the
arts and historical artifacts. If it had not been for a small, dedicated team that searched for,
recovered, protected and returned the precious works that had been stolen by the Hitler regime,
imagine how intellectually poor the world would be.

Hitler was planning on being the victor of the Second World War. He was so sure that he sent his
minions out to collect and store all of the arts he enjoyed as inventory for his plan for the great
Hitler Museum.

As he fancied himself a great artist, he knew exactly the pieces he desired. Many were in the
Louvre, many were in private collections, such as the Rothschild’s. None of that mattered as he
had them stolen from wherever they resided.

Those artists whose work he didn’t care for were pulled from any and all sources and burned.
Contemporary artists like Picasso were beneath his high opinion, therefore no one else was
allowed to like or enjoy them either.

How very coincidental.

Hitler was a censor and an oppressor, and those were the least of his bad qualities.

No one dared to stand up to him allowing him to cause untold destruction and misery.
Number two is that the US is facing the same kind of potential travesty of freedom of expression,
and it cannot happen.

By allowing social media outlets like Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube to
censor who is free to put out information and who is not, the US and the world are at the
beginning of a real issue of freedom and the American way of life. If the media giants don’t like
or approve of opinions and facts, they are no different than the burner of books and arts of the
Third Reich. It isn’t necessary to agree with ideas and concepts, neither must they be true and
proven. Whoever posts them has the RIGHT to say what they please and those who see or hear
have the right to believe or ignore them.

This censorship is likened to Hitler’s defiance of the Treaty of Versailles. It was step one and the
new social media censorship is at step one.

This cannot be permitted. The First Amendment is protection against censorship.

Another disturbing movie The Book Thief, brought to life what happens if step one is breached
and permitted to thrive. This true story of an adopted German girl named Liesel whose family
were caught in the terrible time of Hitler and the Third Reich is heart wrenching in its tragedy.
Her family was hiding a Jew in their basement, and had been for quite a while. He was the son of
the man who had saved her father’s life during the First World War.

They were frightened to death when German soldiers came into town and were inspecting
basements in people’s homes. The people under Hitler had no personal rights, they could not
disallow the soldier from entering. They managed to hide the young man and escape detection,
but it was a nerve wracking affair.

The Fourth Amendment of the Constitution guards against unlawful search and seizures, while
setting guidelines for search warrants and other ways to legally enter a home.
That wasn’t the only time absolute law ran into Liesel’s family.

A man who had lived in the village his whole life was drug from his business one day, beaten
and taken away by the Gestapo.

He was charged with being a Jew because of his surname. His name was spelled with one letter
less than a typical Jewish name that sounded the same. He kept yelling that he was a German and
he was not a Jew. The whole village stood around to watch.

No one protested at all because of their fear.

The only one to come forward was Liesel’s father. He vouched for the man and earned a head
injury from the Gestapo. They took his name as they left the area. As his wife tended his wound,
he cried because he was terrified that his actions would cause them all to be taken away to the
death camps.

Seems history is doomed to repeat itself. We are seeing a small example of guilty by accusation
in the news today concerning the Kavanaugh nomination to the Supreme Court, but this example
is not the only one. Someone casts out an accusation sans proof, of course, and the media circus
and the Soros paid protesters are running to the gallows, screaming for blood.

It is no better than the time of Hitler. Someone is accused without any concrete evidence, and
they are guilty. Maybe they are aren’t (yet) sent to a death camp, but even if cleared from the
charges, the residual taint is a long time fading.

The time to stand up is now. The time to put a stop to this is today. Mob rule is testing us. They
are hoping we will be soft and complacent. Good Americans MUST NOT let this pass as
acceptable.

Free thinking people such as Susan Collins are now persecuted and receiving death threats for
DARING to study the facts and draw her own conclusions. Those such as Joe Manchin who
stood up to the Democratic Party’s mandate that NO ONE was to vote for any Supreme Court
pick by President Trump are also in the line of fire by the Soros financed mob of spastic crazies
whose shame has NO bounds.

The first line of defense can be formed on November 6th, 2018. Everyone must vote for the
protection of our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Those who want “socialism” or worse, sharia
law must be stopped in November!

Remember, Socialism is just the training bra of Communism.

It gets the populace used to the tight restriction building up to the total loss of personal freedoms
and wealth in favor of the “State.”

Everyone has a stake in this game. If one allows for a faction to be persecuted and say nothing,
who will be there to protest when it turns on the same one who said nothing?

Make a mark today, be sure to vote and do not be silent!

Georgia Can’t Trust A Liar Like Geoff Duncan – Details on Geoff Duncan’s Lies

Featured, Politics

Geoff Duncan is lying about David Shafer. Every day, he is pushing a new lie to try and deceive Georgia Republicans. Don’t be fooled — Duncan will say and do anything to get elected. See below why we can’t trust a liar like Geoff Duncan.

Lie #1

Duncan maliciously lies, saying Shafer is being sued for conspiracy.

THE TRUTH:

The newspaper headline in the Duncan advertisement (“Candidate accused of conspiracy in CEO’s ouster”) refers to a lawsuit filed against another candidate, former gubernatorial candidate Clay Tippins.

Shafer is not named as a defendant or accused of wrongdoing in the Tippins lawsuit. In fact, David Shafer has never been named as defendant in any lawsuit.

Lie #2

Duncan lies by accusing David Shafer of not paying taxes.

THE TRUTH:

Shafer’s tax dispute was resolved in his favor and the tax lien issued against him was marked “issued in error and withdrawn.”

Lie #3

Duncan lies, claiming Shafer used political power to end an ethics investigation.

THE TRUTH:

David Shafer was completely exonerated by a two month, bipartisan ethics investigation.

Shafer cooperated fully. He sat for two interviews and produced 10 years of email and telephone records.

The independent counsel hired by the Ethics Committee to investigate the complaint determined that the allegations had been “fabricated” and were “politically motivated.”

Lie #4

Duncan falsely accuses Shafer of getting rich as a State Senator.

THE TRUTH:

David Shafer has worked his entire life. He opened his first bank account at age 8 with money saved from mowing lawns. He worked as a church janitor at age 13 and a restaurant busboy at age 16. He worked his way through college as a department store sales clerk. After college, he earned his real estate license and invested in real estate and he has invested in and started numerous businesses. Shafer is proud of his business success.

Georgia Can’t Trust A Liar Like Geoff Duncan.

Collins Statement on the American Health Care Act

Featured, News

WASHINGTON—Today the House of Representatives did not vote on the American Health Care Act as part of Republicans’ comprehensive health care reform plan. Congressman Doug Collins (R-Ga.), Vice Chair of the House Republican Conference, is an attorney and Air Force Reserve chaplain representing one of the most conservative districts in the nation. Collins has issued the following statement in response:

I am proud to have stood with President Trump to repeal and replace the law that has hurt American families and replaced their freedom with federal mandates. Yet I find myself frustrated and grieved that so many Republicans refused to act according to their professed principles.

Because I am convinced that human life and dignity deserve fierce protection under the law, I am unable to understand how many of my colleagues allowed political myopia to prevent them from supporting the opportunity to defund America’s largest abortion peddler. Because of the decisions of a few members, we remain mired in a health system that is able neither to care for our neighbors nor to protect unborn Americans.”

Letter to the Editor

Letters to Editor

The image of David Ralston his political detractors are trying to paint is absurd and far from reality.  It is a desperate attempt to smear the character of a fine public servant in the hopes of gaining a few votes for a losing campaign. David Ralston was the outsider elected Speaker whose leadership repaired the image of a legislative chamber badly tarnished by scandal into a functioning house committed to responsible legislation in service to Georgians.

David Ralston is truly a life-long Republican who spent most of his early political career in the minority. He was first elected to the state Senate in 1992 defeating an incumbent Republican who had switched parties. That was the same year, Sonny Perdue (D) was re-elected to the state Senate and Nathan Deal (D) was exiting that same chamber to win a seat in the U.S. Congress.  David was a pioneer for conservative principles and building the Republican Party in Georgia before our last two Governors had even joined the GOP.

When he was first elected to the state House, David was not a member of the “in crowd.” His predecessor stripped his political opponents of preferred committee assignments and challenged leaders of his own party to public fights. As a result, issues that needed immediate attention fell to the wayside as political theatrics took center stage.

David challenged the status quo and the Speaker at that time and lost. He paid a political price for his courage in challenging the powers that be. After all, that’s the way things had been done in Georgia for years. Political retribution had long been a common practice.

In 2010, David Ralston was nominated and elected Speaker by his colleagues on a promise to change the attitude of leadership and build a cooperative culture that would focus on respectful debate and putting the needs of Georgians over special interests. It was a promise he kept.

David Ralston could have chosen to follow the path of his predecessors. He could have sought retribution against those who had previously punished him. But, he didn’t. Instead he brought his fellow house members together and built upon a Republican majority.  Within months of David taking the helm of leadership several house members switched parties building the largest GOP majority in state history.  Many credited the improved climate implemented by Speaker Ralston as an impetus for the switch.

No individual has made a more positive impact on the political discourse in Georgia than David Ralston. His detractors would have us believe it is a result of his lack of commitment to conservative principles. They are wrong. It’s a result of his commitment to those very conservative principles.

For three decades, the people of the 7th District have trusted the leadership of David Ralston.  That sphere of trust in his leadership has expanded throughout all of Georgia. David Ralston has led numerous legislative achievements.  But no achievement has been more significant than the culture of cooperation now found in the House of Representatives.  For that, we are a better and stronger Georgia.
